|Fragment from ''The Big Beat''|
From circa 1959, this is a fragment from an episode of "The Big Beat", a New York City local program that aired on WNEW. The existing fragment begins and ends very abruptly. This particular episode was hosted by a nervous Bobby Darin, and includes segments of teens dancing to records, contestants for a beauty contest, and commercials. If you decide to upload this to another website, I request that you make it clear that this is only a fragment and not a complete episode...

|''The Comedy Hour'' - 24 December 1950|
This is an episode of "The Comedy Hour", sponsored by Frigidaire. The performers in this episode include comedian Bob Hope, actor Robert Cummings, harpist Robert Maxwell, opera singer Lily Pons, tap-dancer Betty Bruce, and a speech by Eleanor Roosevelt. Lots of comedy, music, dancing and heavy-handed talks about "freedom" (please let me know if the video plays back OK. Also, please note that on several occasions the kinescope print appears to have sprocket hole damage).
